This show is crisp and glittering and I love it. Perhaps it's the clear separation of all the graceful instruments.

I have to say I first put on the TDIH from 1969 and confirmed for myself that there's no way "earlier is always better." The 1969 show is quite worthwhile but to my ears, they sound like some very talented guys who hadn't yet quite figured out what they were doing, compared to '72.

(cringes awaiting bashing from early-era lovers)
Could just be my mood, maybe I'm just not into the heavy psychedelic stuff at the moment.

EVERYBODY POLKA!!

You neglected to mention the best bit of the 1969 show - the reviews (where there are five). My co-workers were staring as I burst out laughing. Deffinitly !

Yes, I read the first couple of reviews, but am too polite to discuss it further :)

WELL, TDIH 1969 I personally wouldn't consider a notable representation of that era anyway.

But 1972 - hell yes! All these Stanley Theater shows deserve praise. September '72 was a special time indeed.

Excited to check out your suggestion. And no worries, I think 72 can be even more psychedelic than the late 60s at times.

great show, really classic '72. lots of good stuff throughout, but i want to mention the he's gone because it is a tune that might normally get over looked. this is probably my favorite version of the song, mainly because it has a really nice long outro that just keeps rolling along with tons of beautiful jerry melodies and great comping from bobby. the guitars sound particularly good on this recording, and this he's gone jam is just a sweet little 6 minute ride into the sunset. oh, and i don't know if bobby was mistaken or just goofing around, but he plays his birdsong guitar parts at the beginning of he's gone...

I noticed that, too!

Yes, the guitars are just pristine, deep, rich and clear. I really enjoy being able to tell what Jerry, Bob and Phil are doing respectively.

a nice baby blue, too (I'm into that song, lately).

Parts of Mississippi have "Donna problems," but otherwise, a wonderful show.

Speaking of hearing things clearly... I heard something from Bob in this show I've never heard before. PITB - about 11:30-12:00 - he plays all his chords muffled, or "damped" in a striking percussive effect... in perfect rhythm with Bill. This is a tremendous Playin all around! Beautiful interplay ...

Love this show.

love this show so much. one of the best sound mixes i've ever heard. he's gone is one of my favorite versions as well. this show doesn't get the credit it deserves.

I listened to this recently and it truly is a special show. The He's gone and Trucking are magnificent. Tomorrow is Forever is really good. One of the best BT Winds too.
